DavecUK I think there are so many good people roasting coffee now, decent roasted coffee is much easier to get and sales of home roasters had dropped significantly.
I assume it always was and always will be a niche market compared to coffee machines. I obviously have no idea what their business considerations are and assume it wasn’t worth their while, but from a consumer point of view I am sorry to see this happening. They were one of very few sellers in the UK, and it was convenient that they stocked spare parts (they still do, but I fear they now won’t renew once they sell what they have in stock). I am not sure anyone else in the UK stocks those parts.
They also stopped selling green beans right after my first purchase from them, which is a shame because I really enjoyed that coffee. But at least in this respect there are plenty of other places to go to.
